Stylized biofuels fact of the day

From a recent speech by BP Biofuels CEO Philip New (couldn't find a link):
The Brazilian government points out that 99.7% of the country’s
sugarcane plantations are as far from the Amazon as the Vatican is from the Kremlin.
And even better news is that the government plans to keep it that way.

Update: A reader asks, "The Amazon river or the edge of the Amazon rain forest?" It's not specified in the speech (found a link), but I believe he means the forest - the river wouldn't make much sense.
